Post #101 – Women’s Memoirs, Book Business – Kendra Bonnett and Matilda Butler
Have you ever invested in a Kickstarter project? Have you been curious about how Kickstarter works? Have you ever considered using Kickstarter to finance the editing, production and publishing of your memoir?
Well if you’ve wondered at all about Kickstarter and crowdfunding…have we got a webinar for you.
Matilda and I do monthly webinars exclusively for members of our Association for Writing Excellence (AWE). It’s one of the perks when you purchase Writing Alchemy: How to Write Fast and Deep. We cover topics related to writing, marketing and publishing.
This month we’ve decided to do things just a little differently. It’s my birthday month, and when I was little, my mother never wanted my sister, brother or I to feel left out when it was one of our siblings’ birthdays. She gave each of us a present.
It was such a thoughtful thing that I’ve decided to resurrect the practice and give all of you a gift. We’re giving you free access to this month’s AWE webinar. Kickstarter and crowdfunding is such a potentially interesting topic for writers, we just couldn’t keep it private.
So Matilda and I invite you to join us online on Tuesday, June 18th at 5PM Pacific/8PM Eastern. Just follow this link to sign up. It’s free. And you’ll receive an email with all the instructions for joining us online.
In addition to discussing the steps you need to follow to create a Kickstarter project, Matilda had the opportunity to interview Suzanne Sherman who is currently running a project for her book series entitled “100 Years in the Life of An American Girl.” Suzanne with discuss her book and her experiences on Kickstarter. Matilda posted Suzanne’s guest blog here on Women’s Memoirs earlier this week. And we’re going to discuss a few essential do’s and don’ts that will help you be successful on Kickstarter.
